Frequently Asked Questions

We want your experience to be as lovely as the wedding dress you’ll find.
Here are a few tips for making the best of your experience with us:

  • Are the dresses available for buying or renting?

    Our dresses are available to buy only with budgets starting at $1,500.

  • What can I do with the dress after my wedding day?

    For brides buying their dresses from our shop and not interested in keeping it, we offer the option of taking back the wedding gown on consignment to display for sale at a discount during our yearly sample sale event. If the dress gets sold, the bride gets back some of the money she paid initially. The payback amount depends on each case and is agreed upon by both parties before the sale. We always aim to please our brides.

  • What is the price range of the dresses at the shop?

    We believe that a bride should not break the bank to buy her dream wedding dress. We aim to offer amazing value for the quality you are getting. For dresses available to buy, our starting budget is around $1,500. Most of these gowns are sold between $2,500 and $4,500, and go up to $7,000. Our collection available for rent is within the $1,500 ~ $3,000 range.

  • Do I need an appointment?

    Yes. We aim to give each bride our undivided attention. We can also accommodate one bride at a time. This is why our boutique is by appointment only and cannot accommodate walk-ins. Each appointment is 1 hour long. You are welcome to schedule follow up appointments in case you are still undecided. You can schedule your appointment by clicking on the homepage, by phone 01-56 20 66 or by e-mail info@somethingbluelb.com.

  • When should I start shopping and place my order for my wedding dress?

    Dresses available in the shop are samples to try on. In case you like a dress, we would re-order the dress in your size. This takes up 4-6 months to produce, since it is made to order. Accounting for shipping and alterations, it is usually a 5 to 6 month total process. Accordingly, we suggest starting your wedding dress shopping journey 6 to 8 months in advance. Some exceptions can be made, by placing rush orders for an extra fee.

  • Will I need alterations?

    We order the dress as close to your current size as possible, but all bridal gowns need alterations to give it a perfect fit for your wedding day. We offer complimentary alteration services with our specialized seamstress. Alterations usually start 1 month prior to the wedding date. It typically takes 2 to 3 fittings during this month for a perfect fit.

  • Do you do special customizations?

    We offer the option of simple customizations to the styles we carry in store. The most requested customizations are adding/removing straps, beading or volume. More complex requests can be discussed on a case by case basis.

  • What sizes do you carry in store?

    Our sample dresses are usually sized between US 8 (FR 38) and 12 (FR 42). Most of them are a size US 10 (FR 40). We can re-order dresses in any size needed (US 0 to 20).
